THE MAKING OF THE BAND

THE MAKING OF THE BAND

It all started with 4 high school friends who had a profound love for music. They wanted to explore different rhythm and sounds until they found where they were best at. They started with some hip-hop and rap. They also tried rhythm and blues. But the genre that they have decided to focus on was synthpop since they say they have fallen in love with the sound of the synthesizer and wanted to incorporate its sound in all of their music. It also made their music distinct. It set them apart from their peers who formed their own bands and copied the music of their favorite performers. However, the making of the band was not as easy as it sounds. It was difficult especially when they were starting out.
